Why was this wonderful song ever taken out of the schools in America? The song “This Land is Your Land” was written by (Woody) Guthrie many years ago, and was sung by children in schools for many-many years. Then all of a sudden it was not allowed to be sung in schools anymore … WHY? What lame excuse does the United States Government have for not allowing the song “This Land is Your Land” to not be sung in the schools. I love this song along with many other songs that were taken out of schools many years ago, and I think it’s really SAD! Shame on the United States Government to allowing these changes … ;o( “This Land is Your Land” – Why was this song taken out of schools?
